Monday Manners: Southern Meat, Poultry and Seafood

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We had our tax-free weekend, but unfortunately I didn’t take advantage of this too well, as I didn’t get to shop, as I would have liked.  Maybe that was a good thing?  Haha.  We spent Friday over at the in-laws, relaxing in their neighbor’s pool, and on Saturday, we attended a poolside barbecue which was so much!  It’s still very hot here, so it was nice to find a cool place to relax, and still get some sun.

Order on Amazon, HERE, for $7.99

I’m also getting into the really good part of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, so I spent a lot of the weekend trying to finish it.  I would definitely recommend reading this book.  The beginning seems a little boring, but it’s just setting you up for the good part.  Also, if you haven’t heard about this author, click here.  The whole story of his death is really eerie…

On another note, for this week’s Monday Manners, I checked out the wikipedia search again on Southern food, and found my next list.  Next week, I’ll provide you with another list: Soups, Stews and Boils.

Do you see your favorite on the list?  If not, what is it?

As Naina reminded me, Crook’s Corner in Chapel Hill, NC has THE best shrimp and grits, hands down!

Happy Monday, Y’all!

I haven’t included any photos of the girls, lately, so I thought I’d throw these into this post, taken yesterday.
Clapping (E learned how to do this last week)
 W was dancing, while E looks at me like, “What’s wrong with her?”
We also visited my grandparents, on my grandfather’s birthday last week, he turned 84.  If I knew how to post videos, I would show you the video of him diving into their neighbor’s pool.  He always does it on his birthday every year.  The other little guy, in the photos, is my sister’s baby boy.
My sister’s son, just kept staring at our grandmother trying to figure her out, so sweet.
Hugs all around.
This is as close as W gets to my grandmother now, we think the oxygen tube scares her.
P.S. I just checked Rue La La, and on Thursday, Jack Rogers will have a showing.  It looks like it will be more of their new clothing line, than shoes, but you never know!  Click here to join, it’s free.
A dozen shoes just added to my blog sale.  Click here, to browse.

  1. So sounds like the book is good? it is on my list of books to read! love shrimp and grits…we used to get the best shrimp and grits at crooks corner in Chapel Hill. And these pics of your munchkins are so precious especially with the your grandmother. so sweet….

  2. That's a book I've been meaning to read. I really should grab a copy once I'm finished with my current novel. Your girls are adorable!

  3. I am dying to try shrimp & gritz. Love pulled pork, ribs, jambalaya, crab cakes, and many other southern favorites you've listed. I think I'll pass on the chit'lins. They just don't sound that good to me.

    The new photos of your girls are so cute. They look so different from one another, but equally adorable! 🙂

    Sounds like you had a great weekend. Us, too! The location of my getaway was Duluth MN. Such a cool spot!

    Have a good one!

  4. Your girls are too beautiful! Looks like you made some great memories this past weekend!

    I've been on the fence about the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo books but you may have just pushed me to putting it on my library request list.

  5. Your girls are adorable!

    I'm from VA, and I love crab cakes! I order them almost everywhere I go. The best ones I've had were in a restaurant in Fredericksburg, VA.

  6. Great pictures missy!

    I couldn't get into the book. Maybe I didn't give it a good chance because I stopped on page 20 and returned it to B&N. Maybe it's the writing style, I don't know. I probably didn't give it a chance!

  7. I'm with you on the shrimp and grits. Any Southerner that doesn't love grits has something wrong with them! I went many years thinking I didn't like them until I finally tried them and loved them.

  8. I have Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on my reading list. I'm reading Eat, Pray, Love right now.
    Ummmm….hello!!! Beans and Turnip Greens! and Beans and sauerkraut…. seriously, you can't be southern if you haven't eaten these.
    AND, I know this is a beverage…but sweet tea (the correct way, not Lipton).
    The girls are adorable!!!

  9. Oh my goodness, terrific pictures of the girls! The one with Miss W dancing…too stinkin' cute! Ooooh and I love me some SHRIMP! Still waiting on eating anything out of the gulf just yet, but as long as they tell me it's caught in the Atlantic I'm good to go!

    I am still loving the idea of a blog sale and just think I might have to try it myself! Happy Monday!

  10. Your girls are so pretty and happy!!! I love all the pictures. Your list of amazing food made my mouth water. I think pulled pork is my favorite!
